their credentials which are being threatened. >> i think that when governor pat brown designed the education, there were three rungs,. and they were absolutely integral. if you cut off one of those rungs you are cutting off a pathway for people to have a better life. if the community colleges don't offer courses where people can ma trick you late to csu or uc, i think that you are absolutely limiting their options. it is critical to do that. we have 90,000 students at the city college in san francisco. half of them are actually learning english as a second language because san francisco is an entry point for immigrants. and so, often we encourage immigrants to learn english and become citizens and without those courses at the city college they would not have those opportunities. so it is actually critical that we make sure that that institution is funded and that it is protected and that it is fiscally accountable. and we need to make sure that they are teaching classes like the solar class that i helped to advocate for. we now have classes at the campus to learn how to install solar on peop

is expected to cast his ballot in the next hour. >> reporter: here at fire station 6, governor brown will be surrounded by teachers and students he is not the only one advocating for the proposition. yesterday former labor secretary robert reich held a rally. regents said tuition would go up $2400 next semester without prop 30. governor brown held rallies yesterday across the state. students who are against prop 30 say they resent the fact that legislatures haven't better protected education funding. first the governor as he gets biblical about it. >> read the gospel of luke chapter 12, verse 48 where it says those to whom much has been given, much will be required. that's what prop 30 it tells those who have done the best pay a little back. >> students don't have a voice they don't have a strong lobby in sacramento that's why politicians feel comfortable cutting education first. prop 30 end stretches that relationship between students in -- entrenchs that relationship between students in sacramento --. >> reporter: prop 30 would add an increase in state sales tax the governor is fee
that they're against the initiative. no on 32. keeping unions -- still no jerry brown yet. and just a short while ago, yes on prop 30 actually took a small lead. so this crowd has been -- they say they were optimistic and still waiting to hear from the governor. we will bring it to you as soon as he's here. >> and proposition 38 and competing tax measure is on the ballot. this one looks like it's going down in defeat. supporters say prop 38 will generate ability 10 billion dollars for schools opponents arresting tax on the middle class and could force family businesses to cut jobs or move out of state. >> social media, it was huge tonight. especially twitter and facebook. >> what's trending in social media at this hour. eric. >> new topics since the president made his speech. now, minutes after the major networks began calling the race for president obama, twitter says election related tweets spiked to 327,000 per minute if you can get your arms around that. one comment that more people read and shared than any other and we'll share that with you. president obama's twitter account sent out

now. elizabeth warren knocking off scott brown in massachusetts. >> yeah. >> of course we have two here in the state. >> big day for democrats in massachusetts. we have two in our state, as well. so more representation for women and by the way, women played a role in different ways last night because there were two senators who didn't make it obviously or two candidates who didn't make it to the united states senate who said rather inappropriate things during the election about rape and abortion in ways that i think transcend the civil kind of discourse we have about principled disagreement about when life begins or something like that. these points about rape, for example, i think were deeply offensive. the fact that, for example, mr. akin even stayed in this race after making a statement like that i think was bad judgment on his part that his own party didn't force him out is going to force them to rethink their brand going forward. cannot alienate women and expect to win a national election. more women voters in this country. >> okay. joe tuman, we'll have you all morning long.
